In the eternal clash between rivals Rangers and Celtic, there is hardly any room for connection in Scottish football. Sometimes things go into life other than the round ball. This became clear last week when Rangers player Glen Kamara inadvertently became the protagonist in yet another racism riot. Celtic captain Scott Brown showed his support for Kamara by reaching out and hugging him before kick-off.
Rangers FC midfielder Kamara thinks it is unprecedented that Slavia Prague defender Ondrej Kúdela denied that he had been racist against him in Thursday night’s heated Europa League game in Glasgow. The Finn believes that UEFA, which has already announced an investigation, is obliged to intervene on its stand.
Kamara, 25, states that 33-year-old Kúdela said racist words to him in the 87th minute of the 8th final match. Slavia Prague’s Czech confirmed that he angrily addressed the Rangers midfielder for the Scots’ physical play, but added that he said NOTHING racist. The man also received support from his own supporters in a disgusting way.
According to Kúdela, he said “You fucking guy” in Kamara’s ear, but he throws that excuse in the trash can .. “It’s a complete lie. Kúdela came up to me and said with his hand over his mouth in my ear:” You’re a fucking monkey, ”Kamara claimed in a statement posted on Twitter Friday evening.
Even Kúdela teammates have heard different words. For example, Slavia goalkeeper Premysl Kovar said in a memo that his teammate did use the words ‘fucking monkey’:
I’ve been sent this video by someone from the Czech Republic and he has said in the video Slavia player Přemysl Kovář confirmed Kudela said “fucking monkey”…
